Hi,
Following the Product and Storepage DataObjectManger code examples (http://www.carlinowebdesign.com/assets/dataobjectmanager_examples.zip), how can I show thumbnail images of the products in the first column of the data object list in the CMS?
I would like to be able to immediately see the products image as well as text without clicking anything.

Thanks,
Sam

Setup a getter and use it in your headers array.

array(
'DOMThumbnail' => 'Thumbnail',
'Title' => 'Title',
// etc...
)

and in your DataObject class:

public function getDOMThumbnail()
{
return $this->YourImage()->CroppedResize(50,50);
}

Thanks for quick reply.

I am getting the error "The website server has not been able to respond to your request" when I try to flush and access the admin page.

Can you take a look at the code below?

This is my StorePage.php:
<?php
class StorePage extends Page
{
static $has_many = array (
'Products' => 'Product'
);

public function getCMSFields()
{
$fields = parent::getCMSFields();
$manager = new DataObjectManager(
$this,
'Products',
'Product',
array(
'DOMThumbnail' => 'Thumbnail',
'Title' => 'Title',
'Description' => 'Description',
'Price' => 'Price',
'OutOfStock' => 'Out Of Stock'
),
'getCMSFields'
);

$fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.Products", $manager);

return $fields;
}
}

class StorePage_Controller extends Page_Controller
{
}

?>

This is my Product.php:

<?php
class Product extends DataObject
{
static $db = array (
'Title' => 'Varchar(50)',
'Description' => 'Text',
'Price' => 'Decimal',
'OutOfStock' => 'Boolean'

);
static $has_one = array (
'StorePage' => 'StorePage',
'ProductImage' => 'Image'
);

public function getDOMThumbnail()
{
return $this->ProductImage()->CroppedResize(50,50);
}

function getCMSFields()
{
return new FieldSet(

new TextField('Title'),
new TextareaField('Description'),
new NumericField('Price'),
new CheckboxField('OutOfStock','This product is out of stock')
new ImageField('ProductImage'),
);
}
}

?>

Thanks,
Sam

PS: I made an error in my last post. I am actually following the Products and StorePage example at http://www.silverstripe.org/dataobjectmanager-module-forum/show/268739?showPost=268739 not your archived zipped examples.

Get your site in dev mode so you can get a usable error.

Director::set_environment_type('dev');

Here it is.

[User Error] Uncaught Exception: Object->__call(): the method 'croppedresize' does not exist on 'Image'

I am also curious to know how to define the headings array with the intelligent constructor (e.g., new DataObjectManager($this));) in the StorePage.php getCMSFields function.

Great, it all works now!

Is it possible to define the headings array with the intelligent constructor or do I need to use the full constructor?

Thanks,

The only way you could use the intelligent constructor for that is if you defined the headings array in your DataObject class.

static $summary_fields = array (
'Title' => 'Title',
'DOMThumbnail' => 'Thumbail',
// etc...
);
